  1. DBJDBJoe996, What do you use for trnasmisson oil?
  2. Good morning. 1999 996 manual C2. Planning on changing the transmission oil. I know the Mobil Mobilube PTX (75W-90) is the recommended by Porsche but is hard to find and whomever has it is about US$40.00 per liter. Shopping arround found this: Mobil Delvac Synthetic Gear Oil 122035 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing WWW.SUMMITRACING.COM Find Mobil Delvac Synthetic Gear Oil 122035 and get Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing! Mobil Delvac Synthetic Gear Oil is engineered to meet the most demanding extended drain and warranty requirements. It's designed for use in heavy-duty drivetrains that require gear lubricants with... For what I understand is the same product. Also, Is Motul a reliable quality lubricant brand?
  3. In the event I need to replace/retrofit the IMS on my 99 996, isthere a shop in Miami that can do it?
  4. Any of the members use additives and if so what additives do you use?
  5. If I show proof of ownership, should the dealer provide the IPAS code if requested?
  6. 1999 996 standard coupe. It is my understanding that when you lock the car and there is one beep, is sign there is an open circuit in regards to the alarm circuit. However, PST2 does not shows any alarm error codes o the Alarm module. Why? What could be the probem. If there is an open circuit, should the Alarm module show error codes?
  7. In seach of Richard Hamilton . Need your help in regards to a clone PST2 on an IBM 600. You've helped me before.
  8. Makes sense. That's why after replacing the cluster the VIN # is still the same. Thanks.
  9. Well, this is what I did. Cleaned the MAFS, de-oiled the S&N filter. Connected my PST2, did have some error codes but did not take note,do remember, an error code regarding hot film, voltage,etc. However,in order to do the modification did disconnect the MAF connector and made the mistake of strating the car. Once I realized that, reconnected the MAF and was getting the "check eng light" . Cleared the error codes, started the car and no CHCK engine light. The PST2 was sluggish. Another thing I noticed, I replaced the cluster, the DME did show the original VIN number, not the donnor's cluster VIN number. Painted the car and was with no battery for aprox 4 weeks, could it be that when the power was restores the DME updated the VIN number in the cluster?
  10. SHould have asked, in case I need to cean the MAF, what's the correct procedure and what cleaner should I get? Will check on a scan tool.
  11. Hi Guys: After installing this I'mm getting tthe CHK Engine light. Waht could it be? Also. put an K&N filter. however not soaked in oil.
  12. Sorry for the late response.Thanks for your advise.
  13. Hi, has anybody purchased/used the FOB repair kit offered on eBay for a one button FOB 996 1999?
